There's no better way for us fashion girls to ring in the New Year than refreshing our wardrobes with that one special piece — or several. To help you tackle 2017 in style, we've rounded up the seven clothing and accessory items you need to breathe new life into your outfits. All it takes is a statement shoe here or a luxe coat there and you'll be looking and feeling brand new. Keep reading to see what's worth cracking open your wallet for.
A classic trench coat, but in leather
Replace your go-to cotton trench with one in luxurious, supple leather. A neutral hue like camel or black will ensure you'll wear it for years to come — it just gets better with age! Layer it over a pleated maxi skirt for an outfit that's street-style-approved.

Suede ankle boots in a punchy color
Give your black boots a break this year with something a little more vibrant. A cornflower blue suede pair with lace-up detailing will pop against black and white separates. Try them with corduroy culottes and a fur-accented coat for a play on textures.

A camel sweater — with a twist
Upgrade your sweater stash by adding a neutral one with unique design details into the mix. Features like exaggerated sleeves and an interesting obi-style waist sash feel current but also wearable when anchored by a classic camel shade. Dress up the knit with a pair of clean, architectural earrings for a sophisticated effect.

Another velvet dress — but this time patterned
Velvet was one of the biggest trends of 2016, and it's here to stay for 2017. Go bigger and bolder for the New Year and opt for a dress that's velvet
and patterned. Juxtaposing a dark color with a sweet and subtle floral motif is playful and unexpected. Play up the dark romance vibe with a vintage crystal brooch and laced ankle boots.

Superexaggerated flared trousers
This year will be all about the statement pant. Opt for a sophisticated silhouette, like a pair of neutral trousers featuring an exaggerated flare. They'll translate seamlessly between work and play. Balance the femininity and over-the-top design of the pants with a classic, tailored menswear shirt.

A ring-embellished bag

If you haven't already jumped on the metal ring or "pierced" embellishment trend, now's your chance. With the hoop detail adorning everything from boots to sweaters, this is one trend that's not going anywhere. Our favorite ring-bearing piece? A minimal crossbody bag you can pair with anything. Help the sleek metal stand out with other high-shine pops, like a statement gold ring or gold-rimmed glasses, against a clean, white canvas.

An oversize knit sweater to layer over a knit skirt
For a modern take on layering, a knit sweater thrown over a knit skirt will make a statement. Pull out all the stops with ribbing, ruffles, extralong sleeves, two-tone colorblocking, and an oversize silhouette for a combination that will leave a lasting impression. Keep the rest of the look pared back with simple sandals.
